Ravens third-year receiver Breshad Perriman is a guy who was known for his speed and athleticism coming out of college, but there were a lot of question marks about his hands. For people who know how I evaluate receivers, a guy with inconsistent hands always scares me, no matter how fast their 40 time is. Perriman was also thought to be a little raw with his route running coming out, too.
He seemed to be a guy who had the tools to be a good NFL player, but who would need to work on his technique, especially catching the ball correctly.
And then he lost his entire rookie season to a PCL knee ligament injury.
Now, I’m not saying Clarke will definitely be the starter this year, because we all know that the Bengals aren’t necessarily known for doing what seems logical to everyone else. All I’m saying is that Clarke played well enough last year that it should at least be a consideration for them.
Even if Clarke doesn’t overtake Johnson as a starter, this season should still certainly be a big one for him. Especially if the Bengals continue to rush him inside on passing downs opposite of Geno Atkins. That should give him plenty of one-on-one pass-rush opportunities both inside and outside, and I think Clarke is going to make the most of them. By season’s end I would expect Clarke to be close to double-digit sack numbers and probably starting somewhere on the defensive line.
I think Will Clarke will in fact be an upgrade over Johnson Cheap New Zealand Warriors Jerseys this year no matter how much he plays, and that’s why I chose him as the Cheap MLB Jerseys Free Shipping Bengals’ breakout player.
